Food was excellent! Service was good until when it came time to pay and since we were in the back room they forgot about us. Had to walk around and find someone to pay. There was a party of 4-5 that were in the same back room and were super loud. Made it difficult to hear to conduct business. Overall I would come back.

Nice spot for a brunch with good drinks, but food is not the star. We ordered the fried chicken and French toast, but the chicken was only pan fried and not actually fried. For the cost of the food, taste and portion size are disappointing.

We just found Blue Bird Bistro, and it quickly landed at the top of our favorite brunch spots! A hidden gem in KC with outstanding drinks, and most importantly, delicious food.

Was not what I would call a friendly place. We seemed to be a nuisance. They even asked us to leave so they leave early to beat the rain. There are way better places out there to go.

Great food in a wonderful old building. Brunch was great but the restaurant was extremely crowded. We had an 11:30 reservation but did not get our food until 12:45. Our server was fantastic but the owner was exceptionally rude to our party. Want to support local businesses but not sure we want to support her. Definitely want to support the servers and chefs. They are phenomenal. The owner, meh.

Absolutely delicious. Great ambiance. The chicken and French toast was so good my friend had started to eat off my plate. Don’t love the Hibiscus Bubbles drink but the food was fantastic. I’ll definitely be back.

They did seat us in the back room when the beautiful front of the restaurant was empty. A little odd but the food was fantastic.

The food was top-notch! Local and organic when possible, and well prepared. The heirloom tomato appetizer was the best I have ever had. We were still talking about our wines several days later. We will definitely be returning!

We were visiting from California and found Blue Bird Bistro on Open Table. It was so charming! The service and food were both excellent. I wish I would have taken pictures of our meals, especially the heart shaped biscuits.

Sunday brunch.
Food was ok - tofu scramble wasn’t flavorful and biscuit wasn’t fluffy - could have doctored it up with jam, but they were out…of jam…during Sunday Brunch. Server and environment were wonderful.

We stopped in for a birthday breakfast and were pleasantly surprised by the very cool vibe. The food was above expectations - simply delicious! We had the French toast and egg scramble and the chicken and biscuit. We had to wait a little while but it was 100% worth it. I highly recommend!

The Blue Bird Bistro staff is working hard to maintain a safe environment for diners both indoors and outdoors. The meal was as scrumptious as we remembered it to be before Covid. The cocktail menu stupendous. Be brave and go visit them.

We were disappointed, as we always loved in past. The food was very slow in coming out. My Eggs Benedict was cold; the English muffin was hard and tough to cut. It was at least 30 minutes between order and food being brought to table. It was noisy, as room was crowded and most of surfaces are hard. Just not a good experience this time.

Our server was excellent. The manager and staff successfully finished serving our family in under an hour because we had a church service to attend. The food was delicious. The only thing we could say needs attention is that regular dishes should be used instead of paper plates.

I have gotten the same server each time I have come. Each time the experience has been slow and inattentive. The restaurant has been at low capacity during our visits.

We have had good memorable experiences at Bluebird in the past. This was our first visit since Covid. Unfortunately, the food quality had gone down hill. Pancakes were tasteless, bison sausage tasted like poorly seasoned liver, tomato basil soup was salty with dried basil and more like a pasta sauce and the fried tofu was a weird cornmeal flavor. The salmon entree with vegetables was liked. Although the veggies looked like they came from a frozen bag. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Sadly, it was one of our favorite places and we won’t be going back.
